Decided to have breakfast at this little spot. Walked in, states to wait to be seated, took a few minutes for someone to tell us to take a table. A good selection of breakfast items, the food was wonderful. Would definitely go back.

Came with a friend for breakfast….they have a nice selection of breakfast items and homemade jam. Pretty good coffee. The service is a bit slow but the servers are friendly. Would definitely go again if on Merrimon/N. Asheville for breakfast.

Had a delicious breakfast here. Pancakes were wonderful ($1.75 extra for 100% maple syrup -- but worth it!). Slow service but we weren't in a big hurry. Would recommend.

Nice little breakfast place. Good service. Loved the Eggs Benedict and hash brown. Eggs cooked perfectly. I had the green version but nice having choices. Worth trying.

We keep going back to this place over and over. Super good breakfast, great waitstaff. The quality of the food is wonderful. They know how to do eggs!!!! Try the several different types of Benedict, all good. I bet lunch is good too.

We stopped in while visiting the children's bookstore upstairs when my daughter decided she was starving. I was glad the server was fine with my picky child changing her order. Typical diner offerings, although their housemade jams were outstanding. Good coffee, and they kept it...More

First of all, let me preface this review by saying that it is a holiday weekend. Asheville is packed with tourists right now! But I leave this restaurant feeling badly for the wait staff. It was quite apparent that there were not enough servers to...More
